As we were trying to figure out how to launch our "March to Health" month and get more people involved, a couple of the sisters expressed some concern that they, like many other people don't just walk, run, bike or do things that are easily calculated into a mile. They do things such as aerobics or zumba, where you are very much actively working and but stepping at the same time. We really do want all of that to be counted in our "Marching" numbers and we really would love to reach our goal or 5,000 miles "Marched" this month or more. I have found a site that can help convert all that hard work into miles so you know how far you go each day!

***This is Stacy again. If you need to figure out how many calories you burned, one tool you can use is www.caloriecount.com. Under the "Logging" tab, there is an activity log that can assist you in figuring out how many calories you burned.
For example, Mary rode her stationary bike vigorously for 60 minutes last week. She burned approximately 896 cal. Using our steps above, divided by 100, Mary rode approximately 8.96 (or 9) miles.
Rachel also did "Hip Hop Dance" for 45 minutes. She burned approximately 376 calories which converts to approximately 3.75 miles. Great job to both!
Hopefully this is helpful to someone out there.
